Topic for Tuesday 21st April - Librarian Girl

This week is National Library Week, so the topic is:

Tell us about the last book that you read, or what your favorite one is.

I hadn't read a book, apart from the obligatory Parenting/Baby books for a few years until I gave in and read Twilight (which I swore I would never do!) - I ended up reading the 4 books and 5 days, and lost a few pounds on the Twilight diet - which basically consists of reading obsessively and maybe eating a snack once a day to keep you going, so you can stay up longer reading more and more! That was last November and I have since got the reading bug back. The last one I read was 'Hunger Games' by Suzanne Collins. I loved it! A good cat and mouse chase, with a undeclared love story (I am all sappy after Twilight), there's alot about humanity and the power of love and courage.

Topic for Tuesday 31st March - April Fools!

Have you ever had an April Fools Day prank pulled on you, or pulled a prank on someone? Share what happened.

Pranks performed on April Fool's Day range from the simple, (such as saying, "Your shoe's untied!), to the elaborate. Setting a roommate's alarm clock back an hour is a common gag. Whatever the prank, the trickster usually ends it by yelling to his victim, "April Fool!"

Practical jokes are a common practice on April Fool's Day. Sometimes, elaborate practical jokes are played on friends or relatives that last the entire day. The news media even gets involved. For instance, a British short film once shown on April Fool's Day was a fairly detailed documentary about "spaghetti farmers" and how they harvest their crop from the spaghetti trees! Also in Britain you only have until 12pm to do your prank, otherwise the joke is on you!

It's simply a fun little holiday, but a holiday on which one must remain forever vigilant, for he may be the next April Fool!

Topic for Tuesday 17th March - Procrastination!

"If it weren't for the last minute, I wouldn't get anything done."

Are you a procrastinator? What things do you to procrastinate? Are there some thing you are glad you procrastinated, or some things you wish you hadn't? Do you have any tips for overcoming procrastination?

The reason for this topic is because last week was "National Procrastination Week", is that something to celebrate? I thought it would be more appropriate to approach this topic a week late:).

Topic for Tuesday 10th March - Women's Day!

Who has been the most influential woman in your life, and why?

Sunday was International Womens Day which is something that has been around since 1911. Annually on 8 March, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. In some countries it's a national holiday. The tradition sees men honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers and small gifts. So, basically a day to celebrate the awesomeness of women:).

What it is & How it Works

In the last few years both of my parents have passed away, with my father being the most recent in, Feb 2009. There have been key events, like getting married and having a baby, that have happened since my mum passed away three years ago, and there were so many questions that I had for her especially during my pregnancy, that I never thought to ask. This blog was created to give suggestions for topics that could be included as part of my personal or family history, and hopefully yours. I will post a new topic every week. Feel free to leave comments with your thoughts about the subject on this blog, but more importantly, simply record or share your answers in any way you wish. You can see the original 'Tuesday Tell All' blog that this blog is inspired by, by clicking here.

If you have any suggestions for topics, please email me, they will be embraced with open arms! Email:
